The River Waveney

Post by Silfield » Mon Feb 04, 2019 4:42 pm

Does any of the learned collective fish the river Waveney around the Beccles, Bungay area. I had done about 25 years ago with varying degrees of success but thought it would be worth a revisit after a fairly recent paddle down the river in a canoe with the kids. Saw plenty of chub and roach, a couple of pike, kingfishers and an otter! Looks like there might be a bit of a crayfish problem as well so a bit of bacon on a string might be worth taking along!
Would be interested to hear from anyone that does fish it and any suitable places to wet a line.
Thanks.

Good day sir. My main interests lay a little further north, up the Wensum valley.

Hello,
Yes mine too-well it would be if I had a little more time on my hands! I have been away from river fishing for a long time and am now in the process of trying to find suitable stretches of river that are open to day ticket fishing. Next time you are up this way would you give me a shout-It would be good to pop along for a chat and bring you a flask refill!
I fished with my 13 yo son on the Waveney recently, close to Geldeston Locks pub (worth a visit) and had some nice perch, a few roach and a couple of chub before retiring to the pub for a well received meal and a couple of pints of Woodfordes before the walk back to the Three Rivers Campsite, where we were camping. We lit the fire, watched the barn owl flying over and slept like logs.

I help run a fishing association that has two stretches of the Wensum. I'll drop you a PM with the details. We do have quite a lengthy waiting list for each but you never know. My boys are 12 and 14, we like to camp too (and I enjoy a pint of Wherry also!).
